So where are all these Lib Dem Defectors to the Conservatives? I know they are trying to poach us - in my first 261 months as a councillor nobody asked me to switch sides, but I've now I've been given two opportunities in the 262nd.
All political parties have a few discontented souls in the council chambers of the land (and sometimes they have reasons for being discontented). I suspect that Cameron is saving up half a dozen defectors for a press conference at the start of the local election campaign. If he can't even do that, he's really doing poorly.
If it does happen, I suggest that our spokesman pinches an old comment from a New Zealand Prime Minister talking about emigrants to Australia. He should say "Their defection improves the average ability of both parties".
